The Band Returns... and a Birthday!

Following a number of al fresco rehearsals in the school playground outside the practice room over the summer, the Band were delighted to perform at John Coles Park in Chippenham in August. A good crowd gathered to listen to a varied range of musical pieces. It has been 20 months since the Band's last performance so players and spectators were all very pleased to be back.

In September the venue was Kingsgate Park in Yate, for the first time in many years. Fortunately the weather held and the park was busy. Sadly, Clive Rickards the bass trombonist, had recently passed away and Eventide was played as a mark of remembrance. Clive was a real character who will be greatly missed. It was pleasing to return to the park to play in such pleasant surroundings.

The following week, Dodington Parish Council hosted a band performance at Lilliput Park in Chipping Sodbury to celebrate the band's 25th birthday. A good number of local residents brought their camping chairs to listen, and the 1st Raysfield Scout Group provided refreshments. The playlist included traditional marches, modern pop, musicals, big-band and jazz music so there was something for everyone! Thank you DPC!
